And Today There Was an Earthquake in Farmville Virginia

And Today There Was an Earthquake in Farmville Virginia

Girl caught in an earthquakeI live in Central Virginia.  Not an area where one is concerned about earthquakes.  Today proved to be the day that I had to think about earthquakes.

I know that in elementary school that taught us what to do in an earthquake, today my 44 year old brain couldn't remember.  In fact I wasn't sure what was happening. Today as my office shook and shook my office staff, myself and my agents who were in the office all met in the middle of our office before we realized we should be outside or under a large heavy piece of furniture.  We ran outside, office workers in adjoining buildings came into the street also. We all looked at each other...acknowledging that we all just experienced a unique experience.

Wow, we thought was that an earthquake?  And yes it really shook my office--strong. Then as we poured back into the office and our phones started to ring, we realized we had just survived an earthquake.

The rest of the day was a day filled of stories, one of where people where, what they were doing, what they were thinking.  And in that many of us counted our blessings.

As the aftershocks continue to hit, I wonder if the east coast will have to adjust and learn to live with more earthquakes.  Today, as far as I know no lives were lost.  Today Virginia was lucky.

As we go into the end of the week and are facing a hurricane bearing down on us, I hope our "luck" of no homes lost and no lives lost continues.
